We all know of my deep affection for the Luna Lapin patterns by Sarah Peel. On her website she sells gorgeous patterns for knitted shawls and accessories but unfortunately I can’t knit! So, I’ve had a play with crochet and come up with the below pattern that would work for any doll, in my case I’ll use it for a Luna. This is my first crochet pattern I’ve ever shared with anyone, so please be kind if it doesn’t read well!
